Experimental and Modeling Studies of Turing Patterns in Chemical Systems

Presented by: 
I Epstein Brandeis University
Thursday 15th March 2012 - 09:30 to 10:20
I will review three decades of work on Turing patterns in our laboratory, from the discovery of pattern formation in the CIMA reaction to recent experiments on three-dimensional patterns using tomographic techniques. I will discuss modeling efforts (including the Lengyel-Epstein model), approaches to designing systems that display Turing patterns, the effects of external perturbation, and the role of “structured media” (gels, microemulsions, surfaces).
